Default does this sound like bearings are toast?

When I'm driving there's a rubbing, scratching, grinding sounds like it's coming from the drivers side front wheel. I first heard it 3 wks ago, it comes and goes. But today it did it all the way back from town. Does this description sound like cracked bearings?

I have not checked the brakes lately. They work well, so I didn't think of it. Thanks, I'll do that.
